Bathroom Remodel Started

So I have this pattern concerning the house. I will start a project and get half way through it and then I can't wait to have my house put back together and promise myself I will wait a very long time before starting the next project, but then I get motivated and start other project. My bathroom has been a disaster since the home was purchased.

About a month ago I decided that I couldn't take it any longer and I wanted to remodel it next. I have spent the last month scouring Home Depot, the Internet and various stores for deals and sales on bathroom items. I purchased slate tile for the floor, a new toilet, a new vanity, new mirror, paint for the walls. Basically all the stuff for the remodel. I promised myself I wouldn't start the project until I had everything purchased everything for the remodel. Thanks to my tax return I was able to get everything and Saturday the project goes underway. My brother JJ is coming down to help me with everything so to save time I am trying to have the bathroom all ready to put up new walls. This involved some serious demolition and destruction.
The Bathroom Before

Bathroom Demolition

Fake Tiles off the wall

The below picture is of a huge spider web that was behind the walls once they came down. I freaked out. I HATE spiders. I am going to make sure to spray bug killer, set off a few bug bombs, and whatever else I can before the new walls go up. Oh the joys of buying a 1917 home!!!

Anyway there will be more pictures to come and finished product.....
